To provide a comfortable stay to tourists, Hong Kong has a wide variety of accommodation to suit every budget, from luxury equivalent Six Star Hotels to modest guesthouses. One of the known Six Star Hotel that is situated in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui with the greatest definition of luxury is The Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong.
A brief historical background of The Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong
The rapid increase in international air travel in the 1950s and 1960s led to a yearly increase in tourist arrival numbers to Hong Kong. Most of these visitors stay on the Kowloon side, due to its proximity to Kai Tak Airport, and many chose to enjoy the comfort and convenience of The Peninsula during their stay. The opening of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel in 1972 made a night out on Kowloon side an easily accessible exclusion for Hong Kong Island residents and did much to popularize both Tsimshatsui and The Peninsula further.
The Peninsula Hong Kong was opened in 1928 and has established a reputation as the original standard bearer of luxury and refined service, featuring the most advanced, leading-edge facilities, the hotel continues to cater to business and leisure travelers alike.
